Donation of a maxi check to Telethon

The synergy between Danieli, Pittini Group, Pratic and Rizzani de Eccher has been successfully renewed also this year. Their employees and friends attended last December – as runners, organizers and supporters – the fundraising relay race for the fight against genetic diseases.

The four Friulian companies‘ race of solidarity for Telethon has collected more than 14 000 euro to be devoted to scientific research to fight genetic diseases.

The check, which amount grows happily year after year, was delivered this morning at 8.30 to the Chairman of the Committee “Udinese Staffette Telethon” Matteo Tonon, in the historic branch of BNL in via Mercatovecchio, the reference point for all those who give every December their contribution to an event of extraordinary addictive strength. The delivery took place in the presence of Raffaella Basana, Councillor for Sports, and Alessandro Venanzi, councilor for trade and tourism of the city of Udine.
At the event took part the president of Pratic, Dino Orioli, Marco Floreani for the Danieli Group, Giancarlo Sam for Rizzani de Eccher and Flavio Morocco for the Pittini Group.

The amount reached is the result of the performance of the employees’ sport teams, suppliers and supporters of the four companies that the past December 12th and 13th fielded strength and heart to go along with a total that exceeded the 2thousand 217 km.

In addition to the physical contribution of runners, this year was set up a comfortable eating place, in the former palace of UPIM in the city centre of Udine, for all athletes and for anyone who wanted to spend a moment of celebration leaving their offer for research. A place where always reigns a special atmosphere inspired by the good cause and by the spirit of all those who give of their time and resources to an event that can unite and get touched.
